1090423 tn?1286287650 Your chest pain sounds like Costochondritis, but a good doctor will be able to identify the problem. Pain radiating down the back of the leg from the back is usually nerve pain, so a doctor in neuropathy might be a good start for both your chest pain and back/leg pain.
Avatar n tn You're very young for this to be cancer. Have they checked you for appendicitis? It causes pain to go down your leg, and pain between your ovary area and navel. I have never heard of anyone having sciatica pain with colon cancer, I think this was more of a coincidence with the lady you speak of. A blood test would tell your doctor if this is appendicitis. I have seen cases where it lasts quite awhile before becoming really inflammed.
Avatar f tn You are following the correct steps in undergoing a colonoscopy - and maybe, at the same time, the surgeon could carry out an endoscopy to examine the stomach and upper intestines. You are very young to be affected with colon cancer - the normal age is 40+ but there are very occasional instances where patients in their 20's have developed colon cancer. However, if detected early, colon cancer is one of the most curable forms of cancer.
Avatar f tn At your age colon cancer would be incredibly unlikely. Are you taking any multi-vitamins? Iron tablets can cause constipation as can other medications. I'm not sure why you ask about your leg. That sounds like an injury. Give it a few weeks and hopefully it will clear up. See a doctor if it persists as it could be arthritic. Abdominal cramps can be many many things and considering you have altered your diet recently that is the most likely cuprit. Good on you eating more fibre.

Capsaicin KILLS IS PROVEN TO KILL prostate cancer so I figure it can do a number on colon cancer! Papaya enzyme or Bromelain effective with IBD are great for IBD-google. Good Luck!
Avatar f tn My husband has just been diagnosed with Colon cancer on Wednesday, his surgeon wanted to admit him right away but stated he needed more testing before surgery. Is having a chest xray and CT scan normal testing before the surgery or should I prepare for news that the cancer has spread. I need to know because I don't want to be too upset when we meet the surgeon again this Wednesday. Any help I would greatly appreciate. Thank you in advance.
Avatar n tn Can you describe the pain you feel? Abdominal pain is rare in colon cancer. Cancer of the colon and rectum can exhibit itself in several ways such as: bleeding from your rectum or blood mixed with your stool; fatigue and pale skin; abdominal distension; abdominal pain; persistent nausea or vomiting; unexplained weight loss; change in frequency or character of stool; sensation of incomplete evacuation after a bowel movement or rectal pain. The duration of symptoms usually takes 14 weeks.
Avatar n tn s back pain becomes debilitating (cancer chocking off his ureter, creating pain like passing kidney stones) -- but his blood work is fine, so no rush order for the colonoscopy, something that takes about 2 weeks from time of booking to delivery. Day of his first and only colonscopy? March 4, when the doctor who performed the procedure reports blockage and possible colon cancer. Day of first visit to the surgeon? March 5. Date of admission to hospital? March 6.
1440074 tn?1283996071 starting on Sunday, I have been having very severe anal spasms along with a ton of pain, and some itching. It is very hard to sleep at night due to the pain. I have not been constipated, so I don't think it would be hemmorroids. It does not hurt to go to the bathroom either. The pain is pretty constant with spasms very often, and when I have a spasm the pain is so intense that it causes my entire body to tremble. I would describe the pain as almost like a bite near my butthole.
Avatar m tn My husband's 1st wife had colon cancer. It was discovered too late, & she passed away at the age of 24 saddly. Your symptoms don't sound like what my husband told me she had. She started having symptoms in her late teens... chronic constipation, stomach pain, etc. One day while she was away at college, she started throwing up really hard & thought she had a virus. She was staying really tired & just couldn't shake it.
Avatar m tn My mother had colon cancer 1 year ago, had surgery and chemo. The cancer is back and is stage 4 and in the peritoneal cavity. She is 76 years old. The doctors are not giving us much hope for treatment relative to quality of life. We are seeking a second opinion with our doctors blessing. I have been searching the internet also. I feel that we are quickly loosing her.
Avatar m tn t go away so he went for a colon test and it came back that he had sigmo colon cancer and had a colon resection on 12/26/07 and now is going through CHIMO I have taken him to a cancer hospital in new york and they said the same they said here in Illinois.
Avatar m tn I wouldnt worry about colon cancer. From what you are saying it doesnt seem likely. My initial thought is that you have developed a food allergy. I suggest going to an allergy specialist and have them run a test. Until then, try keeping a food journal of everything you eat and drink, as well as how you feel and bowel movements. See if you notice feeling bad after you eat certain types of foods.
Avatar m tn After 3 months I had a severe diarhea and convinced myself that i had colon cancer. My doctor sent me for CBC, occult blood test, liver enzimes, ESR, tumor marker, ultrasound and finally a CT scan with oral contrast,Nothing was found, He told me i have IBS. The issue its that my abdominal pain continues and i tend to develop very loose stools.
Avatar n tn My mom is a cervical and breast cancer survivor and my dad passed on from colon cancer at age 58.I have lost 2 brothers to colon and stomach cancer, my two nieces ages 24 and 28 to leukemia and melanoma cancer, my nephew who had cancer in his bone, thankfully they caught it due to a infection in his leg, and his leg was amputated. My niece who is 28 just found out she has melanoma cancer that has already spread.
Avatar f tn It is difficult to comment without examining. Frank blood is usually not a sign of colon cancer. However since you bleed and itch around anus I feel they could be hemorrhoids that have got infected or twisted. These could also be anal skin tags or even warts. “Medical treatment of hemorrhoids is aimed initially at relieving symptoms.
Avatar n tn I took her to the doctor, but they are referring her to a specialist for a CT scan and a colonoscopy. Does this sound like colon cancer? If so, what should I expect? Is there anything else that it could be? I'm really worried about her.
675718 tn?1530033033 It may seem silly but when I fill out any paperwork for the doctor (or visiting my current doctor) I always let them know about the cancers in my family. Since skin cancer, lung cancer, kidney cancer, colon cancer and many other cancers run in my family, I let my doctor know about it, even if it was a "good" cancer. I was diagnosed with skin cancer in the past year and have had other tests to check for cancer.
Avatar m tn No one in my family has had colon cancer. Three months ago I was diagnosed with mono, which really brought down my whole immune system. I then had walking pneumonia. I had sinus infections in between too, which caused me to take many antibiotics. I have a severely sensitive stomach and the antibiotics ruined my stomach. Ever since than, I have been very nauseous, no energy at all, loss of appetite, and some pain in my left lower abdomen.
1413243 tn?1281795471 It might be a compunded problem. I would advise her to see a gastroenterologist and go from there. My problems started like that and I was diagnosed with diverticultis...eventually it led to surgery for stage III colon cancer. Do not wait...early detection is what saved my life!
Avatar n tn My husband's dad used to have blisters on back and other parts as well...no one put all his symptoms together, he finally died of congestive heart failure, but he also had colon cancer which ran in the family, as his Dad also died from colon cancer. My husband's dad had many symptoms and problems that we now know were due to him having a genetic disorder that made him store excess iron. He was Irish and it is very prevelant in Irish and other European backgrounds.
Avatar n tn If I just had the simoidoscopy a year ago could it be colon cancer that is causing alot of pain in my lower side? Are these tests good for finding colon cancer in the sigmoid and descending colon? The reason I havnt had a colonoscopy is because I cannot have sedatives. Is there a chance that colon cancer comes that quickly after the Flex-sig? I am really scared. I thought I saw blood in the toilet. I am so afraid. Is colon cancer diagnosed alot around my age?
Avatar m tn I heard it was uncommon but the surgeon said sometimes they may be missed the first time around. Do I have higher risks of developing colon cancer? I was told as long as I got checkups and had them removed I would be fine and have the polyps controlled.
